Is chronic back pain preventing your from living an active life? Nearly half of all Americans experience low back pain each year, reports the American Chiropractic Association, and 31 million Americans may be suffering from back pain right now. Low back pain is the leading cause for disability worldwide, according to the Global Burden of Disease 2010. Here in the United States, Americans spend at least $50 billion on back pain care– and that’s just the readily identifiable costs for medical care, workers compensation payments and time lost from work, reports the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research. Nearly all cases of back pain are mechanical; this means the pain is likely connected to a musculoskeletal problem rather than a life-threatening disease like cancer. Our chiropractor in Central Phoenix, Dr. Michael Soloman, DC, has substantial experience treating back pain with drug-free, non-invasive chiropractic care.
If you are suffering from chronic back pain, our chiropractor understands just how frustrated and overwhelmed you may feel. Many medical treatments rely on prescription painkillers to alleviate pain symptoms. This approach to care can be shortsighted, however, since the pain will return as soon as the drugs wear off. Other treatment options like surgery can be risky; in some cases, patients end up experiencing more back pain after surgery than they had before the operation. Chiropractic care is a conservative treatment approach for managing back pain. Chiropractic adjustments target the root cause for your pain – a slipped or herniated disc – and bring correct alignment back to the spine.
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment approach that is safe and effective for managing back pain– and research studies support this. The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research recently conducted an extensive study of patients with low back problems. Based on the study’s findings, the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research now recommends that low back pain sufferers choose the most conservative care first. The agency specifically cited chiropractic spinal manipulation as “the only safe and effective, drugless form of initial professional treatment for acute low back problems in adults.” The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) agrees. JAMA recommends chiropractic care as an effective treatment for lower back pain relief and cautions that surgery is typically not needed and should only be undertaken when all other treatment options are exhausted
